Bio Notes: George Bruce Scotland was the son of John Scotland who practised in Airdrie from the 1880s and probably earlier. He attended Glasgow School of Architecture from August 1909 and served his articles with Sir John James Burnet in Glasgow until the outbreak of the First World War. After war service he was engaged as an assistant in his father's office and in 1921 made a three-month study tour of Italy.
